Well, smashing one would most likely mean it's dead so there's nothing to worry about ;-)

Black widows live in clusters because they just do not travel far. So if you see one you can be sure there are more around. You need professional help. Not just some person who comes to spray your home but a real professional company that knows how to get rid of them,
